Mangosteen juice is a wonderful way to enjoy all of the benefits of the difficult to import into the U.S. mangosteen fruit.
It is offered by several different companies and comes in a couple of varieties. There are brands that use an extract and others that use the whole fruit.
Make sure to choose one that contains the whole fruit mangosteen and not an extract. With an extract you have no guarantee that they have “extracted” the nutrient rich pericarp.
Since the rind is the “good stuff” you’ll want to make sure that you choose a juice that uses the whole fruit.
Also, make sure that mangosteen is the first ingredient so you will ensure that you are getting all of the benefits from each serving.
Most healthy people will want to drink between 1 and 3 ounces of whole fruit mangosteen juice per day. If you are tackling a health challenge you will want to drink 4 to 6 ounces per day.
You will want to drink the juice with meals, since it has fat soluble compounds that will absorb better with food. Also, be sure to space out your servings throughout the course of the day. For example, if you are going to drink 6 ounces a day, it’s best to drink 2 ounces 3 times a day. And be sure to shake well before serving since the whole fruit bits will have settled to the bottom.
